The flowers, fruits and grasses present in the setups of I Maestri del Paesaggio will be observed and then represented through drawings and colours. The workshop aims indirectly towards observing the morphological and functional structure of the plant. The direct aim is to train the eye for this.
Simple directions will be given to ‘break the ice’ through drawing, respecting the size, the geometrical structure and the proportion of the part of the plant being looked at. Then comes the attempt to imitate nature’s palette, starting from special pigments, going on to the ‘wet on wet’ technique of botanical paintings.
